Happy September! I’m reaching out today to share your monthly update on our ongoing efforts to bring back the beloved Zilker Train. Our plans are moving right along, and crews have spent the past few weeks on site, working to make some adjustments to the track.

Our team of experts are also working on retrofitting the train coaches with airbrakes to ensure they’re safe for passengers. I’ll be back next month with another update on what’s happening with the train. We’re hopeful that if all goes well, the new and improved Zilker Eagle will enter the testing phase in late fall/early winter, with the train opening to the public shortly thereafter. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me or Angela Osborn, APF VP of Marketing & Development, at any time.
